I am floored. By a hair product. The Kerastase Resistance Masque is the stuff hair dreams are made of.
Kerastase Resistance Hair Masque review
This is a hair mask, so I guess it's supposed to be reserved for those days where you're feeling indulgent but, I use it every time that I wash my hair.  I have been a fan of the Kerastase line since my high school days (you don't want to know how long ago that was.). For about the last 4 years I'd used the Reflections line and mask The Kerastase Reflection mask worked really well, made my hair soft and frizz free but was very strongly scented.  I dealt with the fragrance issue because it worked so well.   I thought it was my favorite Kerastase product until this gem.

Kerastase Resistance Hair Mask Review

The Kerastase Resistance Mask came into my life and when I first used it, it literally changed my hair texture - after one application.  My hair became really soft and smooth.   It works wonders, even in this Miami heat and humidity.  It's a little hair miracle, without the heavy fragrance.  You can get it at Ulta, Sephora but also sold at drugstores - my local CVS carries it. 

Buy it.

Disclosure: I was not paid to write about this product; every now and then, Kerastase shows me some love and mails me some products. xx

If you've followed me for a while you know that Wander Beauty is one of my favorite makeup brands. They sent over some items from their new Fall collection so that I could test. The felt tip liner (High Line) is super precise - love! The Wanderess Rush eyeshadow palette has really creamy shades (both shimmers and mattes) that blend out well. I have it swatched below.

I recently visited the Caudalie boutique at Brickell City Centre in Miami. The boutique, located on the second floor near Zara, has a quiet and zen treatment room.  The spa offers facials and body treatments by trained estheticians who exclusively use Caudalie products. This is an honest review of my experience getting what I consider to be one of the best facials in Miami

When I first sat down to write this post, we hadn't had our baby girl yet! We are happy to announce that Harper O was born on July 15th. Before her birth, we had no idea what her gender would be.  We were actually able to keep the surprise until the day-of!

When it came time to select a baby shower theme, there were a few gender-neutral ideas I tossed around: night/stars, animals/zoo/jungle, and circus.  I ended up going with the circus themed baby shower - so happy I did!  With the help of Pinterest and Google, and a lot of early mornings, I planned what ended up being a really perfect day.  My best friend pitched in and came through with the Nostalgia Popcorn Machine which was the ultimate finishing touch. This took a lot of work, and a lot of help from family and friends. We are so thankful to my Dad and our parents and loved ones.

Read below for circus themed baby shower inspo and a breakdown of how we made it all happen.

affordable maternity dressWe have a lot of new things to chat about - and no time to chat about them in! I'll try to give you a quick summary. I am in my third trimester now; turned 28 weeks on Saturday. We also just moved! In case anyone was wondering, I do not recommend moving while six months pregnant. Our home is still upside down. Things are still in boxes, and I have no idea where I'm going to stash all of this makeup that I've hoarded over the years. My feet are swollen, I wake up at all hours, work stress and schedule has not lightened up...oh, and where is my concealer?! I have so many broken capillaries and angiomas from throwing up that I can't live without it.

During my pregnancy, I've been fortunate in that I've not needed to invest in many pieces. I have a really kind co-worker who handed down a few pair of her maternity jeans - I've worn them daily. I purchased a pair from a brand called Angel Maternity. I've pretty much lived in them my entire pregnancy (even arguing an MSJ in the Angel Maternity pair - shhhh.). As for dresses, I've mostly managed to stick with the same dresses I owned before; anything that has stretchy fabric is a 'go' (like this basic jersey dress by Leith).
